I'm building up walls
(I'm sorry)
I can't give you what you want
I can't be what you want
(You won't stop wanting)

I'm more distanced than you realize
(I think)
I'm not allowing myself to reciprocate
How could I?
(Was it a series of lies?)

I don't believe your words
(How can I?)
They're sweet, but I fear they're poison
You're only after what you want
(Is that too harsh a sentence?)

You wait for me to come home
(Where is my home?)
I'm struggling to breathe
It's a little like drowning in air
(Stop holding on so tightly)

(P.S. Stop wanting me)
